Washington, DC— Jeffrey A. Huberman, FAIA, of Charlotte, NC, recently was elected second vice president of the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB) at its 88th Annual Meeting and Conference in Denver, CO. Huberman served as regional director of the Council’s Southern Conference (Region 3) that comprises Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, Puerto Rico, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and the Virgin Islands from 2005.
In 1971, Huberman and fellow architect Harvey B. Gantt, FAIA, founded Charlotte-based Gantt Huberman Architects, a partnership that continues today. The award-winning firm has a staff of 40.
Huberman has been chosen by various NCARB presidents to serve on a number of Council committees. He has chaired some of NCARB’s most integral groups, including the Reciprocity Impediments Task Force, the Committee on Procedures and Documents, and the Committee on the Intern Development Program. He also has served as a writer and grader for the Architect Registration Examination®, the nine-division test developed by NCARB and taken by all architects in the United States and Canada seeking registration.
In 1994, Huberman was advanced to the American Institute of Architects’ College of Fellows—the highest honor the AIA bestows on its architect members—in recognition of his longstanding professional contributions. He earned a bachelor of architecture degree from the University of Florida in 1964. Huberman holds the NCARB Certificate for national reciprocity and is registered to practice in North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee.
Huberman has served on the North Carolina Board of Architecture since 1994, where he has been elected secretary, treasurer, vice-president, and president. He has also served in a number of leadership roles for the AIA on both the state and national levels. Among his many honors, Huberman received the 2002 F. Carter Williams Gold Medal, the most distinguished award AIA North Carolina accords its membership.
Beyond his professional responsibilities, Huberman is a highly regarded painter. He has participated in numerous individual and group exhibitions throughout his career, including shows at the NC Museum of Art, the Asheville Art Museum, and the Fayetteville Museum of Art. His work is part of the public collections at the Asheville Art Museum, Bucknell University, and Bank of America.
Among his community-related work, Huberman currently serves on the board of advisors for Opera Carolina and is a former board member of the Green Hill Center for North Carolina Art, Opera Carolina, Children’s Theater, and the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Arts and Science Council. He also has been honored for his service to the City of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County.
